Spring has returned to Caer Mahlod. The Mabden have won a victory over the Fhoi Myore, awful gods of the Cold Folk. Yet the gods of Limbo still threaten other Mabden lands, and the High King Amergin lies wasted, held under an enchantment in a far-off place. Only the magic properties of the Golden Oak and the Silvern Ram can restore the enfeebled Archdruid to his former might.
Thus Corum embarks on his second great quest, and, though he must visit awesome and treacherous places and struggle with fearful enemies, he vows to return with Amergin safe, or not return at all...
